VARIOKIT VTC Tunnel Carriage


Thanks to its easy handling combined with PERI engineering expertise, the VTC Tunnel Formwork Carriage always provides a clever and tailored project solution. Due to the flexible VARIOKIT Modular Construction Kit and the VTC system components for tunnel construction, the system can be flexibly adapted to match a wide range of tunnel cross-sections and designs.

The VTC Tunnel Formwork Carriage is an optimised project solution that accelerates the work process enormously. Depending on the project, it is possible to choose between an entirely manual operation or one completely equipped with hydraulic equipment. With hydraulic equipment for shuttering and striking, the efficiency of the application can be increased. Workloads are minimised for positioning, striking and moving operations.

With a range of other optional features, the performance of the tunnel formwork carriage can be adapted to suit a diversity of requirements.

  • VTC Tunnel Formwork Carriage for the cut-and-cover method
    Solutions for the monolithic, semi-monolithic and separate casting methods
  • VTC Tunnel Formwork Carriage when using mining techniques
    Solutions for the monolithic and separate casting methods

Together with the PERI engineers, we designed a customized formwork carriage solution. This allowed us to concrete two sections per week – and, in spite of the ever-present passage of transit vehicles and steep longitudinal inclination, on-time completion was guaranteed. Due to the lightweight construction and hydraulic operations, the carriage could be lowered, moved forward and set up for the next cycle in less than 60 minutes.

At the beginning, we were rather sceptical concerning the filigree structure. Our trust has been growing by the day – now we are absolutely thrilled. The PERI formwork carriage is extremely stable and very suitable for our daily work, it fulfils all requirements of our jobsite.
